Lasp computations are formed using a small subset of a functional language. In functional languages, it is very common to see intermediate lists—and, more generally, intermediate trees—serve as glue between functions. If these intermediate structures, however, are not used by any other part of the program, replicating them in the underlying network that supports the Lasp language exacts a non-negligible cost at run-time.

This project aims to enable Lasp to generate efficient reductions of these intermediate trees into a single value that represents the combination of multiple functions.
